30 Best CEOs of the Year 2021

Joanna Riley, CEO of Censia: A mentor for diversity in technology, spearheading the organization with her enormous experience and workforce divergence


It is no surprise that talent recruitment professionals turn to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to prove their hiring practices. Yet, without direct human involvement, these solutions can replicate human bias. Talent Intelligence Platforms, driven by artificial intelligence, help talent-acquisition, and human-resources departments manage every part of the employee lifecycle, from the candidate experience to sourcing, screening, hiring, retention, and internal mobility. These Talent Intelligence Platforms, these systems to hire and manage a workforce driven by AI, can help a company see past the traditional resume and understand what someone is capable of doing in their next roles.

Censia is one such firm that helps its clients scale faster, with better people, that stay longer, for a fraction of the time and cost it takes today. It cuts the cost to hire down by 60 percent, fills roles in half the time it takes internal teams while driving up diversity across all clients. Censia delivers broader and more diverse pools of candidates that are better qualified, eliminates wasteful time and processes, and helps companies make better decisions faster. The company has recognized that the talent shortage worldwide is heavily due to the biased hiring process and is determined to change the way companies search for talent. Its Talent Intelligence Platform significantly lessens the time enterprises spend on recruiting while dramatically increasing the candidate pool's quality and diversity.
